  1. According to news reports in San Francisco, he was taking his 88-year-old mother home after an evening visiting friends. I guess they like to drink a little?

    In any case, he was over the .08 legal limit so it's sack cloth and ashes for a year for you archbishop-to-be. Oh, the irony!

  3. Present in the car with the Archbishop elect were his mother, and a minor male exchange student (from Mexico? Not confirmed.) not fluent in English... Hmmmm...

    The US justice system is broken.

  5. The fact that the LGBT community has a$$holes like Sal as an enemy ALMOST make this agnostic a believer in divine intervention.

  8. For my reaction to DUI Sal, Bishop to be of San Francisco and the enemy of women and LGBT people read Psalm 35 or Psalm 92 v, 12 "My eyes look with glee on my enemies; my ears delight in the fall of my foes". Quotes from that vile "holy book" come in handy sometimes.

  9. @John - grape Kool-Aid? Your Lutheran church is located where? Here in Minneapolis, the Lutherans (ELCA) use the real stuff.

  10. This area does not have to be a 'gay' pick up neighborhood. It's a student neighborhood. That is just as much a pick-up place for those types of people as any 'gay neighborhood'.

    In fact, 'gay neighborhoods' are becoming a thing of the past. Cities like Portland, Oregon are so integrated that there is no more 'gay ghetto' or 'gay neighborhood'.

    Therefore, I would think that if I were looking for a pickup, I would head for the local college neighborhood. Because cities are so integrated now with a blend of straights and gays living harmoniously together, the chances for someone like this bishop finding a suitable pick-up are probably the best in a student neighborhood than any other neighborhood.

  11. @Mark Allyn: did you miss the part that said his 88 year old mother was in the car with him?

  12. @John: didn't jesus change a whole lot of water into wine at the marriage feast of Cana? Didn't he drink wine at the last supper? Why did your Lutherans switch to kool aid? YUK!

  13. Went to a SDSU frat party and had a few too many brews bonding with the new pledges? If he wanted a pick up he'd have done better in Hillcrest, North Park, University Heights, Downtown, one of the naval bases or the Marine Recruit Depot. Or PB if he's into the surfer type. Most students don't live near the SDSU campus but in other parts of town and commute.

  14. So, two people of the same sex getting married is wrong... but driving under the influence isn't?

    The hypocrisy of the Catholic Church is equal parts astounding and sad.

    If the Pope doesn't fire him, then that really demonstrates what kind of people the Roman Catholic Church is 'led' by today -- the morally bankrupt kind.

  16. A lot of Catholic bashing here... keep up the good work. I love bashing these morons.

  17. @Andrew: "[D]idn't jesus change a whole lot of water into wine at the marriage feast of Cana? Didn't he drink wine at the last supper? Why did your Lutherans switch to kool aid? YUK!"

    It's a very Protestant thing. Some Protestants have gone to great lengths to try to explain away the passages you cite as really imbibing grape juice. Many a Protestant is a teetotaler. Remember that Prohibition was a Protestant (somewhat anti-Catholic) crusade.

    I'm quite surprised that Lutherans of any sort don't use wine. Certainly Episcopalians never switched from wine. No surprise there are groups who try to have it both ways - no wine at church, but plenty to drink at home (perhaps with curtains drawn).

  18. Shouldn't he have spent the night in jail, like everyone else? hmm... wait... he might have enjoyed that.
